'Drop Dead Diva' Finale Preview: 'Days of Our Lives' Deidre Hall Takes the Stand (Exclusive Video)
Soap fans will be happy to hear that Deidre Hall is not only returning to Days of Our Lives on Monday, but she’s upping the drama on the Drop Dead Diva Season 3 finale this Sunday at 9 p.m. on Lifetime, too. She’ll be playing herself and The Hollywood Reporter has a sneak peek at the drama.
Hall is involved in one of the two cases in the finale. After going to jail in the last episode for assaulting her costar, Stacy (April Bowlby) will be seeing the error of her ways. But before she can be cleared, there’s the little matter of a past conviction and that’s where Hall comes in.
“It's a cute story line and it goes all the way through the show,” Hall says. “My security team has seen on video tape someone stealing something from my apartment. And so I've brought the woman up on charges and I've come into court to play myself. And it's just adorable. It's a clever adorable script.”
So, what was it like to play herself? “It was strange,” she says. “Because I always had that Marlena character to kind of hide behind. So if you don't like her, then it's her you don't like. If you like her, you like me.”
Watch THR’s sneak peek at Hall’s appearance on Sunday’s season finale above.
